Cosmetic Dentistry

Lexington, KY Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions

The great thing that I’ve been able to do here, is that we have great labs that we work with very intimately. So, we can talk with the patients about what their end result wants to be. We do diagnostic wax-ups ahead of time, so that the lab creates what the smiles going to look like from the very beginning. The patient can see that diagnostic wax-up before they even have any treatment done, so they can see what their end result can kind of look like. That’s really neat too, working with other dental professionals to help the patient see the end result before we ever start. It’s just really fun to see people come in and be able to have really a life changing experience.

I had one patient and she had worn a partial for years and never knew that she had any other option. She actually came to me to have a new partial made. I was talking to her and I said, “Well, do you want me to make you a new partial or would you like to have an implant done.” She had been going to the dentist for years, every six months and they had never discussed with her the possibility of not wearing a partial. She ended up having some implants placed and we did some veneers and crowns on adjacent teeth and she loves her smile now. That really has dramatically changed her life, so that she’s gone from a patient who every time she went out to a restaurant, she was embarrassed because she would go to the bathroom to rinse out what food was getting under her partial, to being a person who is very confident, because she doesn’t have to where one.

What is cosmetic dentisty? Our cosmetic dentist in Lexington, KY, Dr. Takacs takes pride in keeping up-to-date on the latest procedures and technology in cosmetic dentistry. Her trademark care and professionalism has earned her an award for Patient Satisfaction in Lexington for the past two years, and many patients have had their lives changed as a result of their new, confident smiles.

Cosmetic dentistry is a full gambit. Some people want cosmetic dentistry that’s just to get white teeth. We do core whitening, which I feel is probably the best whitening process out there now. It is a process where you do the home conditioning with trays, and then you come in and you have an hour and a half where we do the light. You’re going to see easily 6 shades different with the core whitening.

That is one way that we do cosmetic dentistry. Others, they just want to take out some old silver fillings and put the bonded fillings, the white fillings in. That, to them, is cosmetic.

There are others that come in and they just don’t like their teeth. They don’t like their smile, they don’t like anything … Do we do whitening and Invisalign, do we straighten them out? Is that the concern that they have? Or is it more like, they’ve got a lot of fillings and they just need to start looking at … Let’s put some crowns or veneers on your front teeth and let’s give you the smile that you deserve.

There’s various options out there. We provide them all. We even can provide … A patient that comes in and their teeth are a mess … Let’s show you what you could look like by doing a white wax up of your teeth. Boy, that makes a huge difference to the patient when they see badly broken down teeth here, and then this is what I’m going to look like.

We’ve got various ways to take care of the cosmetic concerns that patients come in with.

True cosmetic dentistry is the art and science of creating attractive, confident, and natural-looking smiles that are also healthy and long-lasting. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Takacs does the necessary planning to give you that smile.

Conditions Cosmetic Dentistry Can Correct:

  • Yellowed, stained, or discolored teeth – Teeth can be whitened using teeth whitening such as our very effective Zoom teeth whitening system, or by placing veneers over the teeth. We use beautiful, high-grade porcelain veneers, including Lumineers no-prep veneers.
  • Chips or rough spots – These can often be handled with dental bonding, application of tooth-colored material called composite.
  • Unsightly silver (metal) fillings – We use tooth-colored fillings and can safely remove your amalgam fillings.
  • Uneven teeth – Tooth contouring can reshape your teeth. Another option is the use of porcelain veneers.
  • Gummy smile – We use laser gum recontouring, a painless, fast procedure that removes excess gum.
  • Broken-down teeth – We can restore your teeth with porcelain crowns or durable porcelain inlays or onlays.
  • Crooked teeth – Teeth can be straightened with braces or Invisalign, the clear alternative to braces. In some cases, they can be given a uniform appearance with porcelain veneers.
